Dpreview lost all credibility with the S90 review!
Apr 8, 2010

Dpreview lost all credibility! How can they possibly justify rating the S90 2% points behind the Canon 550 and 6% above the GF1. Let’s just forget the fact that the S90 received an extremely low rating for video(I know some people don’t use it anyway). It doesn’t even really beat the LX3 in picture quality how in the world can it be that much better than the GF1 and anywhere near the 550D?

Please tell me the ratings below were a mistake on Dpreview’s part? If not then I think these ratings actually represent the profit they make on these cameras more than they do the performance of them.

Canon S90 rating = 75%
